Story Behind the Art: Akwasi Agyeman was born into a family of 12 children in the small tribal village of Foase in Ghana, West Africa. The family was so poor that Akwasi was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father farm to feed the family. In 7th grade his teacher asked each of them to make something for art class. Akwasi produced a fertility doll as his project and amazed the teacher. Akwasi knew then he had a natural talent for carving. After fifteen years and with the help of fair trade organizations, Akwasi is now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. Akwasi and his fellow artisans hope you enjoy their work.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
The carving was OK, but the paint job is terrible. Looks like cheap water colors that were slapped on with no attention to detail, the amber of the carvings in the circles of table top and shelf are splotched on with almost as much of the paint outside the carving into the black area. I like the table & carvings and it fits where I bought it for, but will need to repaint and finish. I am not to crafty so have not done so yet. it looks nothing like the well painted,finished table pictured. But at the price for a solid wood table for someone who is crafty it would be an OK purchase
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes but not the finish
Please tell us about the quality of the product. solid wood
Love Worldstock items, have many. Have some from Ghana and was happy with all. This is exception. It's cute and looks like O'stock photo, but if u get close at all, u can c the paint is smeared. Very poor paint job. Very disappointing, but I will still buy other Worldstock items.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor. Paint all smeary. Looks like it was painted in a hurry.
This was a great buy! It is a lovely piece. The colors are vibrant and adds an artful touch to my office. I use it a a planter. I get so many compliments on it. The service from Ovestock was, as usual, superb!
Initially ordered to use as a small table between two chairs. The table is far to fragile to hold anything, mostly because the legs are so unstable. Will use as an expensive plant holder, too much hassle to return. Would not recommend as a "table". They should really rename this item, very deceptive as represented.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Too lightweight to use as a table.
How accurate was the sizing? A little smaller than specified in the description.
The bottom shelf would only be about 2 inches less in diameter than the top shelf which is a 12 inch diameter. The bottom shelf should be about a 10 inch diameter. Thank you for your question.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 8, 2013
